24th International Psycho-Analytical Congress, Amsterdam, 25–30 July 1965

John D. Sutherland, M. Masud R. Khan and Robert P. Knight

As a result of the customary invitation to those who read papers or who contributed papers in discussions, to submit them for possible publication, the number of manuscripts received was such that only just over half could be published, even with a specially enlarged Congress number of the Journal. The Editorial Group has therefore made a representative selection, both of papers and discussion comments.

The Editorial Group is grateful to all those who sent papers and it hopes that those whose contributions have not been selected will appreciate the necessity for choice that faced us.

For this Congress special attention was given to the topic of obsessional neurosis. Freud's first comprehensive study of this condition, described in the Rat Man, was taken as a reference point from which subsequent developments were reviewed. Of particular interest was the account given by Dr Ritvo of a patient who had been analysed in childhood and who had subsequently developed obsessional symptoms as a young adult. Unfortunately, for professional reasons, this paper could not be published in full and only a brief summary appears here. The contributions to the discussion can, however, be followed without full details.
